Course Material

Why are these classes being offered?

DaVita education courses are offered to help empower people with CKD to learn all they can about staying healthy and taking control of their kidney disease. A dialysis healthcare professional will teach you about your stage of CKD, how to prolong kidney function, how to take control of your health through medications and diet and how to improve your quality of life.

What to expect when you come to a class

You’ll be greeted by your educator who is a dialysis nurse, social worker or renal dietitian. You and your guest will join the class (class size ranges from 5-15 people) for about one to two hours of education plus time for questions and answers. You will receive kidney education materials to bring home, including a Health Diary to help you set goals, keep appointments, organize lab values and take medications.

What you will learn in class

The classes are designed to provide information and answer questions so that you are empowered with the knowledge you need to make better decisions about your health.
